Batman Goes Retro in Bruce Timm’s “Strange Days”

14 April 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Animator and producer Bruce Timm hasn’t worked on a Batman animation since 2004, but this year is the Caped Crusader’s 75th anniversary, and DC is making sure we know it by offering all kinds of exclusives and events—among them a black and white, classic-style short by Timm himself: Strange Days.

Check out the length of Batman’s ears. Now that’s 1930s.

To see Timm talk about the development of the short, you can watch this DC “All Access” clip:

Timm co-created the Emmy-winning Batman: The Animated Series, which is still widely believed to be the hero’s best onscreen representation—and I have to agree. It’s the closest I’ve seen to a real Batman comic-in-motion, movies included (sorry, Christopher Nolan), although that might change if somebody just asked Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo to direct a Batman movie.

Bruce Timm is also scheduled to take »

Watch Bruce Timm’s Batman 75th anniversary short Batman: Strange Days

11 April 2014 1:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Wednesday Cartoon Network celebrated the 75th anniversary of Bob Kane (and Bill Finger’s) Dark Knight Detective as Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm reunited with the Caped Crusader for a three-minute animated DC Nation short entitled Batman: Strange Days.

Recounting a lost tale from Batman’s past, Strange Days sees The Dark Knight tracking a strange giant to the mysterious lair of one of his longest-serving villains, Dr. Hugo Strange, who made his first appearance way back in Detective Comics #36.

If you missed the short, or you’re not from the States, then fortunately it has now made its way online, and it’s really rather splendid. Take a look for yourself…

First Look at Bruce Timm's Animated Batman Short "Strange Days"

3 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

These images give us our first look at Bruce Timm's animated short "Batman: Strange Days," which is supposed to air on Cartoon Network's DC Nation on April 9th, 2014. Timm produced the short as a part of Batman's 75th anniversary. 

A brand new short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman’s past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious layer of Dr. Hugo Strange.

The short has a very 1940s film noir influence, with black-and-white aesthetics creating an old school crime drama vibe.

This looks like it's going to be a really cool short, and I'm looking forward to watching it.

Who Is Marvel’s Doctor Strange?

22 March 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggath!  If you even remotely recognize this statement, you may be familiar with Marvel’s biggest practitioner of the mystic arts, Dr. Strange.  Dr. Stephen Strange is currently the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe and ruminations have been coming in hard and fast about the good doctor in relation to the Marvel movie landscape.  It would seem at this point, with rumors ranging from Marvel bringing in Johnny Depp to discuss the character to Marvel studios looking at various directors to helm the project, that it’s not a question of if Strange will find himself joining the ranks of the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, but when!  Don’t know much about the Master of the Mystic arts? Well strap on your Eye of Agamotto and dig out your Wand of Watoomb from the closet, because Collider has you covered. Hit »

Steve McQueen paves way for artists to break the boundaries

8 March 2014 4:12 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Oscar-winning director of 12 Years a Slave has pushed back the boundaries of film because of the fearlessness that comes with a background in art

When the director Steve McQueen was an art student learning basic film-making skills at Goldsmiths College, London, he joked he was already aiming for the time when his name would eclipse that of his glamorous namesake, star of The Great Escape and Bullitt. "One day," he told his tutor, Professor Will Brooker, "when people talk about Steve McQueen, I am going to be the first person they think of."

Now, with an Oscar for his film 12 Years a Slave, the transition from Turner prizewinning artist to celebrated director has been made in style. It is a path to cinematography also taken by the British artist Sam Taylor-Wood, nominated for a Turner prize in 1998 and now editing her high-profile film of the erotic bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey. »

Tina Fey Gets Her Solo Starring Movie With ‘The Taliban Shuffle’

21 February 2014 4:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

While Tina Fey has made her mark in the film world through a number of movies even before she ruled the proverbial comedy club as Liz Lemon, her film career has been characterized by two important factors: those movies have often been flops, and she hasn’t gotten her due time as the star of her own vehicle yet. Obviously, Fey gets top billing whenever she’s in a film, but it’s often shared with the likes of another extremely likeable comedian who’s there to split the limelight — and a little bit of the downfall, if we’re going to be honest — when it comes premiere time: Paul Rudd (Admission), Steve Carell (Date Night), and Amy Poehler (Baby Mama). Now Fey finally has the chance to shine on her own with a film that she’s also producing alongside Lorne Michaels. The Taliban Shuffle is an adaptation of journalist Kim Parker’s book “The Taliban »

Re-Viewed: Kathryn Bigelow's vampire gem Near Dark

21 February 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Near Dark opens with a close-up of a mosquito siphoning blood from an arm. Like the vampires - who, notably, are never referred to as such in the film - that haunt the velvet shadows of Kathryn Bigelow's 1987 picture, the mosquito feeds on blood in order to exist, no more, no less. But another comparison presents itself.

"When we realised we were going to have a live mosquito interact with one of our actors, we had to grow that mosquito so that there were no contaminants. That was a six-month process," Bigelow tells us on the DVD commentary. The same applies to the movie's mythology. Near Dark strips away gothic elements (crucifixes, holy water, stakes through hearts) and supernatural hokum (transformations into bats, etc) to offer a spare tale of love, family and survival. It's a vampire movie, but clean and purpose-built.

Back in the mid-'80s, Bigelow wanted to make a western. »

Tina Fey To Star In And Produce Middle East-Set Feature 'The Taliban Shuffle'

20 February 2014 3:31 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Tina Fey spent years as the star of her own show, playing Liz Lemon for seven seasons of 30 Rock, she doesn't have that much experience as a film's solo lead. She has been paired with some very funny people, from Amy Poehler in Baby Mama to Steve Carell in Date Night to Paul Rudd in Admission, but has never really had to carry a movie herself. Her latest project,according to The Wrap, may be her first chance to do just that. Fey is now attached to both star in and produce The Taliban Shuffle, an adaptation of journalist Kim Barker's book "The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan". Robert Carlock, who collaborated with the actress/lead writer for years on 30 Rock, is penning the script, which follows Barker (Fey) back in 2002 as she travels on assignment to Kabul, Afghanistan.

Tina Fey Will Star in The Taliban Shuffle

20 February 2014 12:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tina Fey will star in and produce the movie The Taliban Shuffle, based on journalist Kim Barker's memoir, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to the Wrap. Fey's frequent collaborator Robert Carlock wrote the adaptation, which traces Barker's experience as a war correspondent. It might not sound funny ha-ha, but in its 2011 review of the book, the Times wrote that "[Barker] depicts herself as a sort of Tina Fey character, who unexpectedly finds herself addicted to the adrenaline rush of war."

Tina Fey Wants To Do The Taliban Shuffle

20 February 2014 10:17 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Tina Fey is someone who likes to generate her own projects in between taking roles in other people's films. She’s carving out some time in her busy schedule to focus on something she really wants to work on, producing and starring an adaptation of Kim Barker’s memoir The Taliban Shuffle.It’s not, as the title suggests, the story of one woman who began a new dance craze. Barker’s book, which is subtitled 'Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan', charts her time as a journalist in Kabul in 2002. With no foreign languages among her skillset and precious little idea how to get between Pakistan and Afghanistan, she was thrown in at the deep end. Slowly but surely, she grew to love the region, even as she became increasingly worried about its future.Though Fey often writes her own films, she’s instead handing this one off »

Transcendence and the return of the 90s cyber thriller

9 January 2014 9:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 10 Jan 2014 - 15:08

With tech thriller Transcendence out this year, Hollywood seems to be revisiting its 90s fascination with virtual reality, Ryan writes...

Like seasons, hairstyles and fashion, genre popularity in Hollywood runs in cycles. Historical epics have faded in and out of favour since the 1930s, for example, and appear to be on the rise again, with Ridley Scott’s Exodus, Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and two movies based on the Hercules legend all on the horizon. It's not just historical epics making a comeback, either. With Wally Pfister's directorial debut Transcendence, we could be in for a mini revival of the cyber thrillers of the 1990s.

If you don't know anything about Transcendence yet, you can catch up with the first trailer here. Briefly, it's about a scientist (Johnny Depp) who's killed by terrorists shortly after completing some groundbreaking research into machine intelligence. Grief stricken, »
